The purpose of life is a life of purpose. ~Attributed to both Ludwig Wittgenstein and Robert Byrne
Purpose fuels your tank when nothing else will.
Have you found your life purpose? Take the time to do so!
A life without cause is a life without effect. ~Barbarella
Despite the source of this quote, I agree with it. I’d only caution to say that you’ll want to choose a worthy cause. There are plenty of Mafia bosses whose causes are not the noblest.
He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. ~Friedrich Nietzche
Once again, when you have a worthy cause, you can bear many things.
Just ask martyrs who have died in the name of God, country, and justice.
The only way to have a life is to commit to it like crazy. ~Angelina Jolie
We love to follow passionate and charismatic leaders. People who have committed “like crazy” to their lives inspire us.
Steve Jobs and Apple Computers.
Martin Luther King, Jr, and passive resistance.
Michael Jordan and basketball.
Rosa Parks and human rights.
Florence Nightingale and the founding of nursing.
Marissa Mayer and leading innovative businesses.

Have you identified a greater cause to give your strengths and talents to?
Do so, and you’ll find great satisfaction.
Living involved tearing up one rough draft after another. ~Author Unknown

I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so that they can see that it’s not the answer. ~Jim Carrey
King Solomon, writer of Ecclesiastes, concluded that life was meaningless apart from acknowledging one’s Creator. On the one hand, I believe in pursuing one’s dreams. On the other hand, if we seek accomplishment, fame, and riches as our True Source of meaning and happiness in life, we’re going to be disappointed.
Don’t think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drive into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark. ~Samuel Johnson
There are times when I need to crawl away from the battle and lick my wounds. And there have been times I’ve thought of myself as the victim of poor circumstances.
But when I’ve learned to take full personal responsibility, accept reality, and bark out of the essence of who I am, life is a lot more rewarding.What are some of your favorite life purpose quotes? Please let me know below!
